ANDREA PORRO 6
WHAT I CHOSE: FOR MY MOM, I DECIDED TO GO WITH A BOLD BLUE DRESS THAT HAS A BLACK HORIZONTAL LINE ACROSS THE MIDDLE TO DEFINE THE WAISTLINE. THE DOUBLE-WRAP NECKLACE ADDS SOME VOLUME AT THE TOP OF HER BODY. A BLACK BLAZER COVERS HER ARMS, WHICH SHE STATED ARE HER PROBLEM AREAS. THE CUT OF THE BLAZER ALSO HELPS ADD SHAPE TO HER BODY. HER LEGS ARE ANOTHER BODY PART SHE WAS NOT INTERESTED IN SHOWING, THAT’S WHY THE DRESS IS PAIRED WITH BLACK TIGHTS. THE BLACK ANKLE BOOTS ARE A SIMPLE 1 ½”-2” HEEL TO ADD HEIGHT BUT BE COMFORTABLE AROUND TO WALK ALL DAY IN. I KEPT THE EYE MAKEUP NATURAL WITH SOME HIGHLIGHTING TO OPEN THEM UP A BIT, AND A RED LIP WITH MATCHING NAILS FOR A COLOR POP.

For Ashley, on her way to a Super bowl party, I decided to keep her in solids, as is her preference. She tends to carry her weight on the upper half on her body, so the shirt I chose has horizontal lines that help balance out the lower half. I paired the shirt with leggings and black knee high boots. The makeup is natural, with a slightly smoked out eye going on, and her naturally curly hair is done into three braids then wrapped into a bun to polish the look.

I tried to mimic his look to the one Theodore wore in the film. I chose a light blue Oxford shirt and placed a long sleeved navy blue sweater over it. The look helped broaden his shoulders a bit. The pants I thought were very interesting, as they look grey but are actually black and white very small crisscrosses. The brown belt with the gold detail I thought would pull the look together nicely, as well as secure the pants better. I kept the black dress shoes as it went with the look.
I chose an A-line dress to compliment her body type, and the color of it, as well as the shoes contrasts beautifully against her skin. The small body bag is to not overwhelm the look, as she is tiny. I think winged eye liner would be ideal as well as sleek, straight hair.

I chose a dress that Iâ€™d only ever worn once in my life when I was still in high school. The top of the dress is heart shaped which I thought would compliment the top half of the body. The waistline is emphasized by the embellishment. The layering of the bottom of the dress creates volume on my bottom half. Since the dress has so much going on I paired it with a nude heel. I kept my hair loose, with a gold eye look and a dark lip.
